Best Friend

Album: Supermodel (2014)
  • (When your best friends are strung out)
    You'll do everything you can
    'Cause you're never gonna let it get em down
    (When you find it all around)
    Yeah, it comes in waves, but it's hardest from the start

    Feeling, sleeping, in the field again,
    Oh, I can feel, I can feel
    I can feel, it's beginning to end

    Yeah, premonition smiling in the dark
    Oh, I can see, I can see
    I can see the story starting to arc

    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    It's comes up
    I've been a spoken word
    I've been a river bed
    I've been a rabid voice
    And let it flow up from within

    Sometimes it feels like I only dream in black and white

    Ah, ah, ah, ah
    And colors so

    (When your best friends are strung out)
    You'll do everything you can
    'Cause you're never gonna let it get em down
    (When you find it all around)
    Yeah, you say it's what you need
    And hide your eyes when you're close to me
    (When you feel up in the clouds)
    Well, it comes in waves, but it's hardest from the start

    Waits, and fed us, slipping into dreams
    Oh, I can feel, I can feel
    I can feel the celestial beings

    Oh welted pleasures leaving with the breath
    I can see, I can see
    I can see the beauty in the mask

    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    It draws up
    I've been a river bed
    I tried to salt the wound
    I've carried more than I can
    I feel I've got a lot to prove
    Sometimes I feel like I only dream in black and white

    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    But colors so

    (When your best friends are strung out)
    You'll do everything you can
    'Cause you're never gonna let it get em down
    (When you find it all around)
    Yeah, you say it's what you need
    You hide your eyes when you're close to me
    (When you feel up in the clouds)
    You ought to know
    That I'm here no matter where you want to go
    (In your head hanging upside-down)
    Well, it comes in waves, but it's hardest from the start

    I'm here, no matter where you are
    So let it in with, open arms, no matter where you are
    Sometimes, you'll have to wait,
    And it passes by like a satellite or star
    No matter where you are

    (When your best friends are strung out)
    You know when (Ooh-hoo-hoo)
    (When you feel up in the clouds)
    Oh, yeah, you know when (Ooh-hoo-hoo)

    (When your best friends are strung out)
    Oh, yeah, you know when
    You ought to know
    That I'm here no matter where you want to go
    (In your head, hanging upside-down)
    Yeah, you know when
    That's how you know
    When your best friends are strung out Writer/s: MARK FOSTER, ISOM INNIS
